Selling Stone
« on: June 13, 2014, 09:23:33 PM »

Hey guys,

As far as I've seen, you can't sell stone to any trader. I would like to be able to sell stone for at least one silver, seeing as I have 4,000 too much, and could really use some metal.

Has anyone seen a trader that buys stone?

I haven't, it'd be nice to have a 'Materials' trader that takes stone, bricks and wood. Just my two cents

Wood and Stone should sell for 1 each (and be bought for 2 each).  Metal should sell for 2 each (and cost 3 each).

Wood and Stone should not be big money industries, but if I can turn 900 bricks into 300 metal, that would be nice.

What if we could turn the stone into a useful item, like a statue or something, and sell the finished goods?   There is a huge lack of "Finished goods" in rimworld. So no way to really have an economy without metal...

I can't really see rocks being a popular interstellar trade item.

Well, think about it. Extraterrestrial gravel! Made from the finest stones from the farthest reaches of the galaxy.

Admittedly, certain types of rock are much sought after, and can be shipped long distances, such as marble and pink granite.

Then perhaps it ought to be further refined, like a refining table. Extracting the real gems from the gravel, so to speak. Otherwise it's just a very good material to make floors with.

I like how this game can result in quotes that would be quite unnerving when said in public, out of context. - Myself

And still, we continuously get invaded by drop-pods giving us a lot of stone bricks. But from where do they comes from?

Till Alpha 7 hits, you may want to check out "Trader Tweaks" below my message, it allows you to trade stone to industrial traders, although I don't know to which price.
